Greetings everyone. My name is Sara, a mix of Border Collie/Cattle Dog/??? with an alluringly subtle brindle coat. It’s crazy, but after a number months of easy living as the new kid in my former home, the other dogs up and decide to take a them-or-me stand, and well, you can guess the rest. So here I am at SOAR by way of Brunswick County Sheriffs Animal Protective Services. Oh well, better to have to go through these changes while I’m still very young, right? Anyhow, I am enjoying the walks with the volunteers and even the commands lessons that I know will only make your job a lot easier after you adopt me (hint hint). Oh by the way, I am spayed, and UTD on vaccinations. See you soon.

Hi, all – I am Chase, a 50-55 pound Australian Shepherd mix. My humans had to move to much smaller quarters that they felt were not suitable for me and so they brought me to SOAR in hopes that I could find a new loving home. In spite of it all, I remain a cheerful boy as my picture here would suggest. So, please do not be sad for me, but do think about me if you have a spot for a happy fellow in your home.

Pardon me everyone for being just a little late in reporting in. I am Buttercup and as you can see I do have a Retriever’s sort of buttery coat. I came in at the same time as my ex-housemates Jo-Jo and Queenie, but the SOAR folks wanted to give me a little extra time to get settled after having lost my home. In just 3 weeks the volunteers have helped me overcome a lot of my initial nervousness. Now I am off to foster care with Sarah and Josh and their three dogs and one cat for some fine tuning. Follow my progress by going to SOAR’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/SOARanimalrescue) and typing “Louie SOAR” in the search bar. If you would like to meet me please call the SOAR Director @ 457-6340.

Hello everyone. My name is Nini. I am a Lab/Australian Cattle Dog mix, weighing 56 lbs. I lived in the same Carolina Beach home for just about all of my 8 years but my family had to give me up following a succession of big changes in their life. This has left me a little confused, but SOAR has already started working on helping me transition to shelter life. I am feeling pretty upbeat – all things considered – and looking forward to life with a new loving family.

Queenie here reporting to you from the SOAR kennel yard. I was just getting ready to head out on a stroll with one of the volunteers when I thought it was about time I check in with everyone. I am a senior girl – a sweetie of a Beagle mix who had been living with Jo-Jo and Buttercup until we had to be surrendered due to a family move. Now we ladies don’t ordinarily like to talk about our weight but I might as well tell you anyway…I am just a little bit chunky. I mean, after all, it’s not like my picture says otherwise. But did I mention how sweet I am? I am also spayed and UTD on vaccinations. Hope to see you soon.

“…Jo-Jo left his home in Tucson Arizona, for some California grass…” Well, not quite folks, but I did leave my home in Rocky Point NC for some of this Southport-Oak Island grass. I’m sure my ex-housemates Queenie or Buttercup have covered the why’s and wherefore’s quite nicely. Suffice it to say that there’ll be no “getting back to where I once belonged”, but this friendly hound mix is ready to move forward. I am a moderately active boy weighing in at around 30-35 pounds. I have been neutered and I am UTD on vaccinations. Come visit me when you get the chance.

Howdy folks. Elvis here, and you guessed right, I’m honest to goodness Treeing Walker “Hound Dog.” SOAR brought me in as a stray with Raven, who is pictured right above me. While he’s quite the self assured one, I am a little on the timid side so I might have to take a little extra time to get my paws on the ground. I hope you won’t hold that against me. I am UTD on vaccinations and I am microchipped. At 37 pounds, I am looking forward to fattening up on some hardy meals here at SOAR. See you around.

Pardon my tongue everyone – I mean no disrespect. I’m Tux, a 50-55 pound neutered Husky/Shepherd mix. I was living in the same home as my pal Dylia before we were brought here, casualties of a family that had to go on the move. My introduction to SOAR amounted to a romp with Dylia in the exercise yard before I ever got to my kennel. I thought it was a good start. Now Dylia has been adopted, but I have quickly formed friendships with some of my new pals at SOAR. It’s pretty easy when you are friendly and playful. See you around.

Zoey here. For weeks and weeks at Animal Protective Services I watched that SOAR van come and go and now finally I will have to watch no more. This place is nice and green, the air is fresh, and you can watch all the ‘comings and goings’ in a country setting while you wait for the big break. Beautiful. Oh yeah, sorry, so about me – I am a young Lab mix girl with maybe a dash of Border Collie, 40-45 pounds, spayed and UTD on vaccinations. I heard some of the SOAR people saying I remind them of a smaller Baby - another Lab girl who lived here for a long time until she got her big break in June. I’ll just have to take their word for it. I am pretty athletic, and big on exercise – catch my 11/11/15 video post on Facebook - so I am hoping to find a home where I can be active. See you when you get here.

Hello. I am Dixie, a 10-year old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix, spayed and up to date on my shots. If I look familiar, it may be because you saw me on the back cover of PawPrints Magazine a couple of years back. I was Pet of the Month you see for 12 consecutive issues. Most recently, you might have spotted me strutting my stuff in the 2014 Oak Island Christmas By The Sea parade. A sweetie when I came to SOAR with my 3 babies in 2008, I am just as sweet today – as long as we are not talking cats, that is. They are not safe around me. A nice couple adopted me during my first year at SOAR. They had to bring me back after 6 months, not because I was bad, but because I was just a little too much for them to handle back then. These were some of their comments on the surrender form: “Sweet”, “loving”, “smart”, “knows commands”, “good with other dogs”, “very social”; “too strong for old person.” All true then and still true today. Don’t miss my video on our Facebook page – 11/24/14 – catch me at one of my favorite things to do — running after the ball with my ex-SOAR pal Baby and flashing my soccer moves. Won’t you give me the break I’ve been very patiently awaiting? I won’t disappoint.
